The Environment Agency has updated its Flood Warning for the Upper River Nene in Northamptonshire. A flood warning is in force for the isolated properties and villages near the Upper River Nene and its tributaries.

Flooding is expected for the Isolated properties and villages near the Upper River Nene and its tributaries including Nether Heyford, Bugbrooke, Bugbrooke Mill, Upton Mill, Horton, Hackleton and Preston Deanery during Saturday night and into Sunday.

Immediate action required.

"Heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday resulted in high river levels on the Upper River Nene, resulting in localised flooding of low lying land, roads and properties. Levels did start to recede on Saturday, but further heavy rainfall is expected to fall through Saturday night and into Sunday. This will cause river levels to start rising again through the night. It is possible that levels will rise higher than they did on Wednesday and Thursday, flooding a wider area than before."
